Linux New Media USA, LLC, announces the launch of a new print publication, Ubuntu User magazine.

Canonical's popular Ubuntu operating system continues to win followers around the world, and Ubuntu User is the first print magazine specifically for this rapidly growing audience. "Ubuntu is popular with software developers and IT professionals, but it is also a hit with hobbyists and other desktop users who are looking for an alternative to Microsoft Windows and don't want the restrictive hardware policies of Apple," says Joe Casad, Editor in Chief of Ubuntu User.

In addition to reviews, interviews, community news, HowTo articles, troubleshooting tips, and in-depth technical articles, Ubuntu User includes a helpful Discovery Guide for readers who are new to the world of Ubuntu. A free DVD included with each issue of Ubuntu User provides an easy way for users to upgrade to the latest version. New users can boot from the DVD drive without disturbing the existing installation.

The heading is for Ubuntu magazine but the post states "Would you like to win a gratis subscription to Smart Developer Magazine courtesy of LinuxQuestions.org"

It even threw me off for a bit, I even went back to make sure I had selected the right link. Oh well, just goes to prove we're all human.

Thanks for the heads up, the post has been updated (we're also giving away a subscription to Smart Developer here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-of-lq-862697/).

I am so impressed a site would do such a thing to begin with, I don't give this site enough credit. That being said, I'm looking at moving my WHOLE box over to linux (vs dual-boot with xp 64). Just afraid a few games won't run is all. LOL

I am very excited and looking forward to the first issue (not quite camping out by the mailbox yet, but almost) I will share anything I learn with all here.
